”TEA FOR THREE: LADY BIRD, PAT & BETTY” is a witty, sly, and deeply moving script that explores the hopes, fears and loves of Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, and Betty Ford – three drastically different women, with one thing in common: The White House.
Particularly pertinent in this era of heightened politics, TEA FOR THREE humanizes the political scene with a whimsical and authentic look at three former first ladies, each sharing some memories of life in the fishbowl of First Ladydom.
In three scenes taking place in the family quarters of The White House just prior to the end of living there as the wife of a president, each of the women confides alone to the audience.
This is a tale of a remarkable trio in a most unusual job and revealing the the personal cost of what Mrs. Nixon called the “hardest unpaid job in the world.”
“This highly polarizing political climate is perfect for the show since it manages to reach across the aisles, something we all need right now, especially on election night. We can make hay with that.” Elaine Bromka, Author
